on september 11. many believe the obama administration initially covered up what was a terrorist attack by saying the violence might have been generated by an anti-muslim tape. we now know ambassador stevens, foreign service officer sean smith, former navy seal and two others were killed in a planned terrorist attack. the situation has the potential, potential to damage president obama's reelection chances. let's take it step by step in a methodical way. on september 12, president obama reacted to the murder of ambassador stevens by first discussing the anti-muslim tape. >> we reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others, but there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence. none. >> bill: the next day, secretary of state hillary clinton made a public statement again emphasizing the tape. >> the united states government had absolutely nothing to do with this video. we absolutely reject its content and message. america's commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. >> bill: notice no mention of the possibility
, situation here where the obama administration blew it. and are actually accusing the administration of misleading the public. the obama administration denies that. hindsight is 20/20. but there's no doubt about it. there were requests they didn't feel safe. they needed more. let's face it. the facts play out that they had, very good suspicion and they were right. >> and this was not a good time for the hearing, for the obama administration. >> no. >> especially 20-something days away from the election. >> got that right. >> tough. >>> talk about lawyers and jerry sandusky, they say they will fight the attempts to take away his penn state pension. the retirement pension told sandusky will no longer receive $4,900 monthly check. in light of his conviction on child sex charges. sandusky received a total of $900,000 in pension payments between his retirement in 1999 and last month. >> wow. >> that's -- that's a sweet retirement deal. >> $900,000. >> that's a lot. wow. >> apparently the decision rests on analysis that he remained a de facto employee of penn state in the years after his 1

aside, there is no question that the obama administration screwed this up. there is no question. they screwed it up. we simplyid not have enough security in libyato pct ic asa e quon gg far was there a conscious effort to cover up that poor security situation? the answer to that question could decide the election. and that's a memo. lina ralph peters. bri i know you're angry about this. and i know you're very critical about this. but let's take it step by step as we did in e talking points memo. that was a fair talking points memo. rrect? thatas otheorht wnmte 1 tug woyou agree with that, that was a fair memo? >> yeah. i think it was beyond fair. you actually gave the white house the benefit of the doubt. >> bill: i think that's the right thg to do from my perspective here because there is no smoking gun row aye. isnoor,uh 'sasnating about this is there is a division now between hillary clinton and barak obama. if you want to personalize it. that was a pretty interesting conference call yesterday. the state departmt called it, invitedssep c,ch iras. cd ci purpose and it had to b
. bill: has the obama administration taken a position on this. stkphapb. >> president obam on this dan? >> president obama has never been in favor of marijuana usage or recreational use. but the white house and the justice department have been silent on these ballot initiatives. eric holder was sent a letter urging him to speak out. he has not. we've been trying for a weak to get a comment and we are still waiting. >> it is shocking that attorney general holder, that the director, but most of all that k about this. of the united look, it's about health, it's about safety, it's about the future of our country. >> a big question, if it passes in one or two of these states is will the fed step in and enforce federal drug laws because of course bill it will still be illegal according to the federal government even if it's legal in a couple of these dates. bill: thank you. dan springer is on that story in the state of washington, seattle. patti ann: governor romney's speech on foreign policy is under an hour away. it comes on the heels of a big week for the g.o.p. what do they hope to accom
't think they were responsible, but the careerist on the one hand and the obama administration on the other. you know, you have backlit with secretary clinton. she is on record several times as saying the violence was caused by the video, famously, ambassador rice said that the white house spokesman said it. but if there is consistency, it appears to be in the rear side of the state department, saying from the get-go that it was a terrorist attack. that will be an interesting centerpiece to this hearing today. is this a real bureaucracy versus the white house? jenna: let's talk about the procedure. you were an ambassador, he worked for the state department, you were a member of the president's cabinet -- just the same as ambassador rice at this time. as information breaks and comes in, is there any chance that different people get different information and perhaps that happened here? >> yes, well, i was not a member of the president's cabinet. this may be part of the problem. all you have to cabinet officials in the state department. that is a prescription for potential trouble. but obvious
, for former senior obama white house administration official. in a task force member. we have daniel, the chief commodity economist at citibank . also a task force member. and we of stephen, a former assistant secretary of state for non-proliferation, current. i will turn it over to susan. i want to add some more things. we have a review board. we had never done this before. with a task force -- had issued a number of iran reports of the last four or five years. because this is such a complex issue, we added a review board of other energy experts and economists. and it is in the report about who they are. there were very constructive and helpful to us about how to think about this. we thought it would be useful to of outside experts to help guide us in the energy and economic experts, even though we have a couple of energy and economic folks at the center, i was an oil analyst years ago. but this is complex stuff. and we thought the outside stuff was used all. i also want to thank and acknowledge dan in the front row, also a task force member. and i also want to thank, in particular,
that is abandoned by the obama administration and it is important to support our allies like israel and support the opposition in syria and obviously touch on the libyan issue with regard to the benghazi attack and the death of four americans including the death of ambassador stevens and our role in the middle east, not being an observer but an active participant . making foreign policy work for the united states. >> steve: you will see the next debate on foreign policy. since the debate debacle for the president they blamed everybody. blaming mitt romney for being a liar . blamed jimm lehrer and even the guy who prepared the president. john kerry. he wants to be secretary of state and so he didn't get in the president's face. there is an item apparently the obama staff knew 10 minutes before it was all over on wednesday night that it was a debacle and convened a conference call and decided to go after romney and hit on big bird and all new ads to have a come back. >> gretchen: apparently the adpeople stayed up all might to have an adto go right away. when president obama was in hollywood . he
in this election. we can elect somebody who does not have a plan, will be an echo of the obama administration. or somebody who will continue to be an independent voice for arizona. i would appreciate your vote. >> thank you for your opening statements. let's fine tune things a little bit here. why you and not him? >> happy to have the opportunity. no, my life has been one that has been best exemplified by the infrastructure of opportunity that this nation has. i am a high-school dropout from an immigrant family. i have prospered because of this great infrastructure of opportunity in our nation. i have been able to serve my country as a physician, a police officer, as a professor, as a teacher. and doing all of those things has allowed me to appreciate how great this nation is. what i want to do is make sure we can preserve this infrastructure of opportunity so every kid can get that american dream. >> what you and not him? >> that is exactly it. that opportunity will not exist unless we get a hold of this $16 trillion debt. that is why we have to have somebody who has a record, who is willing
the obama administration. what do you make of this, chris? >> well, you're exactly right. obama had a bad first debate and you don't want to have two bad debates in a row. i don't think that biden will. you know, it's interesting, i interviewed paul ryan last week and talked to him about, about biden and i said what do you think of biden? you've been studying him obviously and prepping for him. he said, look, he's a very experienced guy and been in this for 40 years and you're not going to throw him off his game. and i said, yeah, how about the gaffes? he says he makes those in exte extempraneous on the stump and i don't think that he was spinning me, a strong determined biden. what's fascinating is the contrast between these guys, an old school liberal in the case of biden and a young gun conservative in the case of paul ryan and i mean, these guys couldn't be further apart in their outlook on the government and what they think are the solutions for the country over the next four years. >> and the way they speak, too, right, guys? and paul ryan we talking to huckabee, does paul ryan run
. they're asking the obama administration to take down the ad. >> steve: they're taking fire because mitt romney brought it up in the debate where if -- he said i love you jim, but i'm not big on funding pbs and things like that. and a lot of the country feels like why do we actually contribute millions and millions of dollars to public broadcasting? well, michelle obama was in virginia outside of washington, d.c. yesterday. she is pro-big bird. mitt romney was talking yesterday he is against government subsidizing public broadcasting. here they both are. >> we believe in keeping our priorities straight. we all know good ask well that cutting sesame street is no way to balance the budget. >> food stamps, when the president took office, 32 million people on food stamps. now there are 47 million people on food stamps. these are tough times with real serious issues. so you have to scratch your head when the president spends the last week talking about saving big bird. [ laughter ] >> steve: he's right. >> brian: what an insult to the american people to think we're that stupid, we need a chil
and a former senior obama administration advisor to treasury secretary tim geithner. this is about an hour. >> good morning. i'm the vice president and codirector of the economic studies program here at brookings. i'm pleased to introduce one of the newest governors of the federal reserve board, jeremy stein. governor stein swore the oath of office on may 30th, 2012, to fill an unexpired term ending january 31st, 2018. this is not his first tour of duty in washington. in 2009 governor stein served in the obama administration as a senior advisor to the secretary of the treasury and on the staff of the national economic council. prior to his appointment to the fed board governor stein was a stafford professor of economics at harvard university where he taught courses in finance and undergraduate and ph.d programs. previously governor stein taught finance at mit's sloane school of management. before that he was an assistant professor at the harvard business school. governor stein has a distinguished research record. he has covered many topics including behaviorial finance and stock market eff
, the bush administration and obama administration, we always knew that u.s. consulates and embassies are absolutely prime targets for terrorist attacks. we've seen this before in the bush administration, we had attacks in the consulate in karachi and pakistan in saudi arabia, in jeddah, in syria, and elsewhere throughout the region. so this is not entirely new. we know the threat is there. i think what we've seen in libya is, obviously a government which still had a real challenge in using its own forces to protect the limited u.s. presence and very legitimate questions now about the degree of security that was there at the embassy. from what i understand, there still was no long specific actual intelligence about this attack, but it's quite clear there was a threat in libya generally, a specific threat that we'd seen over the previous couple months in benghazi, and now obviously the congress and the executive branch have to look hard and see should that security have been heightened, but as you noted, the diplomatic security within the state department has long been a target of budg
in light of how proabortion the obama administration has been and how he has come out for same sex marriage, clearly in opposition to catholic church teaching. and especially in relationship to this. now, what joe by deb is probably parsing here -- biden is parsing here is the only way you can get away with it is say we are not providing the contraceptives our insurance companies are. so it's a transference. it's still your money going to the insurance company and the insurance company is providing it it's a nice way to try to trick the system. i think people have of integrity know that if it's still your money essentially that's providing it doesn't matter if you are using a third party to do it. it's like saying i didn't buy those drugs. i gave the money to a kid who went out and bought the drugs. it's ridiculous. >> i haven't heard a lot about it on the campaign trail. maybe we will 24 days. the governor sticking around for this in 2008 the president said he would bridge the partisan divide. new polls say he is making us more divided. the surprising results next. >> and it turns out thos
of the failures, i believe, of the obama administration that eventually will come out. but here is what i am going to predict. we have seen a lot of smoke blowing. i think we are going to see whistle blowing. here is why. people in the intelligence community are insulted, they have been denigrated. they have been held in essence out to dry for this whole debacle. and i guarantee you some of these people who are highly professional who put their lives and their families' lives on the lines to do what they do are going to at some point going to start saying okay, we're going to get the truth out. it's going to start leaking. you will see stories within the next 10 days that will spill some beans. >> that's already happened in terms of acre nordstrom and andrew wood the two guys that were with -- they came forward because they wanted to talk about what he was going on on the ground in benghazi. we want to move to the debate and some of the style issues over substance what did you think about joe biden's affect his demeanor. >> was he affected? i think he clearly was. somewhere two thirds of the way i
hanand the obama administration on the oth. you knowyou have backlit with secrety clton. is rderim sgh vncs ed h video, famously, ambassadorice said that the white house spokesman said it. but if there isconsistency, it appears be ithe ee hete tmenyng om g-o t terrorist attack. that will be an interesting centerpiece to this hearing today. is this a real bureaucracy versus the white house? jenna: let's talk about the prur wen ss,e ed ttaepen u abe t president's cabinet -- just the same as ambassador rice at this time. as information breaks and comes in, is there any chance that different people get fferent haedhrprapat esll asot a member of the president's cabinet. this may be part of the problem. all you have to cabine officials in the state department. that is a prescription for potential trouble. but obviously, when top exn rtarntey ldhvat ll at nformation. otherwise, it is a prescription for the ministration to get itself into trouble, as it has done here. normally that would not be in the view of the ambassador. that job is not responsible for diplomatic security in libya ontein
. it is almost unheard of. host: what does the obama administration face? guest: there in a little bit of a difficult situation. they came out with the remarks early on stating that it was a mop. they will be stuck with that for a while. they will have to take action and they will have to take action very clear that it is changing the way things are done. people have to be held responsible. host: what does that action look like? guest: that is a good question. i think you will see people relieved of their duties. you will see people -- you will see funds reallocated to diplomatic security. host: frank joins us on the democrats' line. caller: i do not understand, it seems like people are arguing that president obama should be sitting in the white house and making decisions about security in our embassies. dancing is way below his pay grade. maybe i missed -- maybe -- that seems well below his pay grade. maybe i am missing something. according to the washington post, in those hearings, this was a cia base. that is interesting to me. it sounds like it might not have been mistaken. that wa
recovered a species, it will be delisted. this was not a decision made by obama administration. it was a judge who reversed the position who changed the future of wolf recovery. it changed the goal posts. what we need ultimately need we needed an endangered reform act. it's not working for the betterment of the endangered species and there's nobody in this room, nobody in montana that wanted to endangered species. that want species to disappear from the face of the earth. the point is we need certainty. we need to work together to delist it. turn management back over to the state. the solution and compromise came up was stopgap. it should be delisted. it still allows the u.s. fish and wildlife service to have an influence. the management should be sent back to the state as we have proposed in my legislation. >> the problem is, legislation didn't make it out of committee. still setting there. we got a bill we can get bipartisan support for and get passed. it was done after talking with sportsmen and livestock producers and conservationist across the board. it was the right thing
